then the change they made did not go too well. and now they are stepping in and saying, hang on, it is merely a bump in the road and china is on the right path here. it does not change the economic picture at all, it is just more symbolic in the near term. i look at what china is going through right now. there is going to be a meeting at the imf. what will you look for next? enda: well, it will be interesting to see if it is only conditional, if it applies to what they grant china, whether or not there are any clauses or further barriers set up to entry. but at this stage it looks like it might be a rounding -- a resounding victory for the pboc and those pursuing this agenda. if they do get across the line now, it is a big ticket for them. elements are really -- it will
6:15 am
not turn around the debt story or the gdp growth, but it is a victory for reformers. presuming any last-minute conditionality, it is a good victory for the imf. enda curran from hong kong this morning. this is, of course, the photo opportunity. help me out here, francine lacqua. live.ne: it is i have never seen a live photo opportunity. this is rather exciting. moon witheban kin francois hollande. this is the biggest gathering of world leaders in france. since 1948, in france. i believe, jonathan fenby, this is the largest photo op i have ever seen. jonathan: they need a very wide lens here. tom: it is so telling, the pakistan minister, meeting with
6:16 am
the afghanistan minister. francine: there are sideshows at the same time. tom: jonathan fenby, what is the -- tell us your knowledge of china's military might. movingn: china has been up with its military power. he is rightly say, pursuing that in east asia and also using china's financial muscle with all kinds of schemes , the asian infrastructure bank, the soft road policy, the brics bank. china is going out in all kinds of ways, and his presence at this summit is symptomatic of that. tom: is it a hard power or a soft power? they want to be resilient, but there is such a history of a chinese way that gets in the way, doesn't it?
6:17 am
jonathan: chinese soft power has not worked that well. but at the same time, xi jinping wants to engage with the rest of the world, and the other -- the ultimate goal is to be number one. francine: when you look at the role that china is playing in paris, in 2009 when we had a copenhagen, a total flop, china was very reluctant. the chinese, if they do not want -- or if they want to stop the social revolt, they need to be on board and sign an agreement. jonathan: absolutely. when the paris meeting takes place, we have air pollution in beijing or you cannot even measure it now. one of my colleagues was calling in and saying he cannot see not just across the road but to the middle-of-the-road. tom: should we talk to a physicist? i think we should. francine: we have one here. tom: the ozone and the combination of pollution, hydrocarbons, and solar energy is really difficult, isn't it?
6:18 am
really difficult because also the time in which you have to rein it in gets harder and harder as time passes. that is the reason why there is so much pressure. jonathan: and you have about 20% of the world's steel being produced around beijing, most of it by outdated steel mills. francine and i will join you from paris on friday. important meetings with people who can actually get things done. paris up, we will speak at 6:00 a.m. starting on friday. coming up, jonathan fenby and gemma godfrey as well. it is "bloomberg surveillance." ♪

caroline hyde knows all of this. she is in paris this morning for the beginning of a good 11 days of meetings. i get it, caroline. what do they want to do on day 5, day 7, and day numeral line at the paris meetings? caroline: compromise, compromise, copper mice. the great ineady the good, the glitz and the glamour today. leaders, therld biggest on record in one day, that many world leaders. phenomenal when you are in a country that is in a state of emergency. but in the next few days, they are trying to accelerate agreements because they need to somehow clamp down on world 4mperatures, not rising by degrees, but less than 2 degrees.

anything binding, but they will be held to account. tom: caroline hyde, thank you so much, in paris. we will be there on friday to join her. gemma godfrey and jonathan fenby are with us. there is no game theory in europe with 25 countries. how do you have game theory with 100 some nations? gemma: it is about the meetings going on behind the scene's that are most interesting. when you have that number of people in that one area, the amount of different negotiations going on that we do not hear about, that will be the interesting story we will hear from this conference. francine: we are not going to have a legally binding agreement, right? when you look at emerging markets, they seem to be getting more on board. what does the western developed world have to promise emerging markets to get something? china will not sign up
6:26 am
for any legally binding agreement. it prizes its own sovereignty too much. wantthe emerging markets is a sign that the developed countries will do something. they probably want financial aid of some kind. and there may be some kind of trade tie-in with this to make it easier to sell goods if you produce them in an environment -- tom: stay with a spear jonathan fenby with his wonderful short must read, and i read it. his book on china. and gemma godfrey is with us as well. coming up, the president speaks in paris. stay with us.

6:32 am
bloomberg commodity index. this is something carl weinberg is watching. carl weinberg, without question, wrote the research note of the weekend, not on unit dynamics but price change of commodities. carl, your piece is must-read, and basically what you say is prices fold right into domestic economies. how will lower commodity prices affect the united states? carl: it affects everybody, tom. that morning. i hope you are enjoying london. people with reduced commodities make less money than they did before so they are poorer, and these people are customers of u.s. exporters, buying our airplanes, consumer goods, technology, and all the things we are trying to sell overseas with the stronger dollar. this is part of a headwind. somewhere between 2% and 3% of world gdp by my estimates, and that means we will see them buying less stuff from the
6:33 am
developed world. tom: a young guy like you has seen only three commodity fair markets. markets and commodities clear differently? carl: we are seeing a slow clearing because of excess supply, periods of low interest rates and high commodity prices. that is a perfect stew for over investing and production. it is iron, copper, every commodity you can imagine. will take a few years to work it off, and in that time we will see lower incomes in emerging markets. it is a record drop in world trade, and we are going to pay the price for it. francine: so far it has been catastrophic for countries like brazil and so forth, where a stronger dollar is helping in terms of commodities and what they can get from commodities. will that change and when?
6:34 am
carl: lowering the exchange rate just shifts the burden away from exporters to importers. take canada for instance -- they depreciate the currency and offset the pain, which is good for oil producers, but everybody in canada who want something from the united states has to pay more for it. it shifts the pain to the consumer, so the oil companies are hanging in there in canada, but consumer spending is going down and the economy itself will grow below potential in the third quarter. vonnie: canada is obviously a strong economy, as much as it is suffering. what about countries like brazil, which are really in danger? carl: this is the big risk. priceop in commodity destabilizes these economies and causes a global drop in gdp. they and up buying less stuff from us.
6:35 am
francine: ok, so they buy less stuff from us. at the same time, we are benefiting from lower oil prices because it means that the stuff a nice filter to the real economy. so how does 2016 work? are we benefiting more for lower oil prices than we are from a lack of people spending in our country? carl: right out of the box we feel great. we pay less for gas and for one our incomes like have gone up and we have spent faster. but when we moved to the second year, oil prices are still low. oilave lost growth because prices are down. so we lose the benefit, but people in those countries are still making less money for doing the same amount of digging. they are still poorer, and they are buying less stuff from us. initially we feel great, it at the end of the day we are worse off for it. worlds a 14% job in
6:36 am
exports, the second-biggest drop we have seen percentagewise. it is between 2% and 3% of gdp. the income effects are slower to come forward, but they are huge. gemma: we are saying that companies over the next couple of years, they could benefit from a greater relaxation in terms of their margins because they are not just talking about oil prices, where talking about commodities in general, which have push-up that cost to input. do you think this gives a little bit of a breather? carl: somewhere down the road there is a windfall for prices in all this. materials -- when you look at the cost of making things, about 85% of the cost of producing our economy, it is labor costs, not materials costs. asthe windfall is not nearly

important as good wage performance would be for them. im: the wage performance -- have never asked this question. will we adjust to china? they have better inflation. we do not have rising wages yet. do they? jonathan: they do indeed. 22% inshed up wages 2010. it is policy. tom: like bloomberg! [laughter] jonathan: you had this wage increase, which put pressure on chinese exporters, and as carl was just saying, the labor wage versus chinese prices is relatively small. francine: welcome to london. tom: this is just unbelievable. carl weinberg is with us from high frequency economics.

6:43 am
tom: our single best chart today is for carl weinberg at high frequency economics. we look at dollar dynamics, not so much getting back to the plaza court of the 1980's. maybe getting back to the rubin-dollar. look how we are getting toward where we were on a five-year moving average basis. about 2000, 2002. carl, tell me about dollar dynamics. isn't that always a solution for economic challenge? carl: i do not know if it is always a solution, but the dollar is going to be a big factor in 2016 both for u.s. exporters, and for people around the world. it will be a stimulating factor for the rest of the world. we do not know much about what the foreign exchange rates and what the model is or anything, but one thing we are sure about is if we get an exchange and interest rate spreads, that will affect the currency.

the fed lifting off the ecb is not, the bank of england is almost certainly not. anything on the yuan side, there is great potential there as well to make the dollar stronger against the yuan. tom: when we see a stronger dollar, there is always a pointy response because it politically becomes important. how close are we to where other nations start screaming? carl: i think they already have started screaming about the strength of the dollar, but i think the biggest scream is going to be domestic. it is going to be exporters complaining they will have trouble selling their stuff overseas. and we see that right now in our current forecast at high frequency for the u.s. economy. it is the exports sector dragging down manufacturing. right now trade is already a headwind because volumes are low from overseas, as we discussed before, with lower income in emerging markets and less stuff
6:45 am
to import. but a stronger dollar makes our stuff less competitive. francine: jemma, what is your take on this? when you look at the pound and the dollar next year, the market will be a little less binary if we get this fed liftoff. gemma: you have heard that you cannot fight the fed. you now cannot fight the currency move. if you are investing in a company in america, it will be more prudent to buy the shares of companies who are more exposed domestically because any overseas sales are going to be hit by a stronger dollar. francine: if you look at the investment world -- and this is something tom is extremely keen on -- when you look at the currency moves and what china's role is in this, we have currency and trenchant today. thathan: china mishandled completely. we have for intervention, control of the currency. we expect there will be a small

depreciation in the yuan next year, but you can bet your bottom dollar that the pboc and the political leadership will keep control of this. they are not going to open up a capital account. they are not going to allow a freely floating currency, whatever they do at the imf. gemma: i like that pun -- you bet your bottom dollar. today we are looking at 6.4 versus the u.s. dollar. where will we be after the inclusion? carl: there are a number of other things going on. i think we are looking for a period right now of yuan depreciation. vonnie: by as much as how much? some people are looking at 20%. rocco going back to december carl: going back to

6:51 am
the power to change. right here. right now. but only if we rise to this moment. as one of america's governors has said, we are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change, and the last generation that can do something about it. i have come here personally, as the leader of the world's largest economy in the world's ter, to sayest emit that the united states not only recognize our role in creating this problem, we embrace our responsibility to do something about it. over the last seven years, we have made ambitious investments ambitiousnergy, and
6:52 am
reductions in our carbon emissions. we have multiplied wind power threefold, solar power more than 20 fold, helping create parts of america where these clean power sources are finally cheaper and dirtier conventional power. invested in energy efficiency in every way imaginable. no toe said infrastructure that would pull high carbon fossil fuels from the ground, and we said yes to the first ever set of national standards limiting the amount of carbon pollution our power plants can release into the sky. the advances we have made have helped drive our economic output to all-time highs and drive our carbon pollution to its lowest level in nearly two decades. but the good news is, this is not an american trend alone. last year the global economy
6:53 am
grew, while global carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels stayed flat. what this means cannot be overstated. we have broken the old arguments for in action. we have proved that strong economic growth and a safer environment no longer have to conflict with one another. they can work in concert with one another. hope.at should give us one of the enemies that we will be fighting at this conference is cynicism, the notion we cannot do anything about climate change. our progress should give us hope during these two weeks. hope that is rooted in collective action.
6:54 am
earlier this month in dubai, after years of delay, the world agreed to work together to cut the super pollutants known as a hfc's. that is progress. over 180 countries, representing 95% of global emissions, have put forward their own climate targets. that is progress. for our part, america is on track to reach the emissions targets i set six years ago in copenhagen. we will reduce our carbon below 2005 levels by 2020. last year i set a new target. america will reduce our carbon by 28% by 10 years from now. our task in paris is to turn
6:55 am
these achievements into an enduring framework for human progress. it is not a stopgap solution, but a long-term strategy that gives the world confidence in a low-carbon future. here in paris, let's secure an agreement that builds in ambition, where progress paves the way for regularly updated targets, targets that are not set for each of us that by each , taking into account the differences that each nation is facing. let's agree to a strong system of transparency that gives each of us the confidence that all of us are meeting our commitments. that thes make sure countries who do not yet have the full capacity to report on their targets receive the support that they need. paris, let's reaffirm
6:56 am
our commitment that resources will be there for countries to skipto do their part the dirty phase of development. i realize this will not be easy. it will take innovation and the capital to continue driving down the cost of clean energy. that is why this afternoon i will join many of you to accelerate public and private clean energy on a global scale. here in paris, let's also make sure these resources flow to the countries that need help, preparing for the impacts of climate change that we can no longer afford. we know the truth, that many nations have contributed little to climate change but will be the first to feel it's most destructive effects.
6:57 am
for some, particularly island nations, whose leaders i will meet with tomorrow, i'm a change is a threat to their very existence. that is why today, in concert with other nations, america confirms our strong and ongoing commitment to the least developed countries. tomorrow we will pledge new contributions to risk insurance initiatives to help populations rebuild stronger after climate-related disasters. paris, let'sin show businesses and investors that the global economy is on a firm path toward a low-carbon future. if we put the right rules and incentives in place, we will unleash the creative power of our best scientists and engineers and entrepreneurs to deploy clean energy technologies and the new jobs and opportunities that they create all around the world. there are hundreds of billions of dollars ready to deploy to
6:58 am
countries around the world, if they get the signal that we mean business this time three let's send that signal. we seek in these next two weeks. not simply an agreement to roll back the pollution we put into our skies, but an agreement that helps us lift people from poverty without condemning the thatgeneration to a planet is beyond its capacity to repair. here in paris, we can show the world what is possible when we in commonher, united effort and by a common purpose. let there be no doubt, the next generation is watching what we do. just over a week ago i was in malaysia, where i held a town hall with young people. the first question i received was from a young indonesian woman. it was not about terrorism or the economy or human rights, it was about climate change. she asked whether i was
6:59 am
optimistic about what we could achieve in paris. and what young people like her could do to help. i want our actions to show her that we are listening. i want our actions to be big enough to draw on the talents of all of our people -- men and women, rich and poor. i want to show her passionate, idealistic generation that we care about their future. i believe in the words of dr. martin luther king jr., that there is such a thing as being too late. when it comes to climate change, that our is almost upon us. but if we act here and now, if we place our own short-term the air thatind our young people will breathe and the food that they eat in the water they will drink, and the hopes and dreams that sustain their lives, we will not be too late. my fellow leaders, accepting
7:00 am
this challenge will not reward us with moments of victory, but -- our progress will be measured differently. and the suffering that is averted, and a planet that is preserved, and that is what has always made this so hard. liveeneration may not even to see the full realization of what we do here, but the knowledge that the next generation will be better off for what we do here -- can we imagine a more worth the reward for that? on to our children and grandchildren so that when they look back and they see what ere in paris, they can take pride in our achievement. let that be the common goal in paris -- a world that i
